    I am looking at getting a Cannondale Trigger carbon (2013 version) as an upgrade to my RZ 120 that I have been riding for the last year.

    This would be my 1st carbon framed mountain bike and I was hoping for some advice on the frame. How tough are these modern carbon frames compared to alloy. Do I need to look after it in any different way to my old alloy bikes?

    Should I need to worry about hitting the frame on things like rocks?

    Cheers

    Got the alloy trigger 1 and it’s excellent can’t imagine how good the lighter version will be.
    One tip: go at least two weight groups down when setting the Dyad shock.

    How about the sizing and geometry eddie.Looks like a long top tube/flat back jobbie to me.

    I’ve got the medium 29 and it simply feels right for me at 5’10” with normal proportions. Right to the extent I don’t want to ride anything else, even on the commute to work…

    bike not arrived yet ;-(

    will update when it does. I was between a medium and large size on the RZ so I am hoping the size will be spot on.
